    that youre running around foaming at the mouth over this. ive been a member of this site for over six years (several longer than you have), and a faithful reader almost since its inception. if markos feels like banning me or anyone else for replying to a thread about a specific topic with a different viewpoint than the rest of the circular knee jerk, then i will gladly stop reading or using dailykos. i mean, itll be weird getting banned from essentially the most widely read progressive blog because i dont support torture and extra-judicial assassination, and think the best way dissuade the democratic party from supporting torture, murder, and spying on citizens might be to withhold the occasional vote, especially when i live in a guaranteed obama state. but thats up to markos and tightwads who running around HIDE RATING people who disagree with them in a comments section.

    i seem to recall a major tenet of of this site being that the democratic party can take votes for granted. and in this case, just because the president slow jams the news and is friends with jay-z doesnt man i will vote for him when he assassinates americans. leaving my ballot blank is how i choose to voice that disagreement, and the tool i choose to use to change the democratic party for the better. you feel like just going along with whatever is the best way. so we have a difference of opinion.

    so kos and others, please ban me for this if thats your prerogative.
